PTO will not engage!!
I've got a 78 Ariens S-16 Hydrostatic lawn tractor with a mowing deck(42'' i think). Engine had a complete overhaul, engine runs like a champ. Problem i'm having is once I pull the switch to Implement the PTO to turn the deck, the engine drags down and eventually kills. Checked all the electrical and one PCB and everything looks alright and works as it should. Now is the electric PTO clutch not grounded good or is it a different problem???
Been troubleshooting this for bout a year now. Wanting to cut my green pasture again!!
Hate to see it just sitting down and depressed cause I can't understand what's wrong with it.
Any idea's guys?
